Editorial Reviews

(DIGIPACK) The group's new release, Steam, combines collective freely improvised jams with new writing from Hopper, Etheridge and Travis. Gone are the keyboards that so defined 1970s Soft Machine. In their place are modernistic sampling/looping and sonic processing, creating expansive soundscapes not possible during Soft Machine's heyday. Between Etheridge's broad sonics, Hopper's legendary bass loops and "fuzztonics" and Travis' system of ambitronics - allowing him to sample his saxophones and flutes in real time and naturally layer unpredictable harmonies - Soft Machine (Legacy) often sounds larger than a quartet. Powerful rock rhythms, funky jazz-rock grooves and abstract interaction are interspersed with muscular soloing and dense textures.

Quoting Dave Di Martino, Yahoo! Music and Launch.com honcho:
"A great new recording by the Brit jazz quartet that arose from the ashes of the much revered Soft Machine, this marvelous disc features saxophonist Theo Travis as the replacement for the sadly departed Elton Dean, who distinctive sound was a hallmark of UK jazz for nearly 40 years. I strongly advise you to check out this band's work, as well as the other batch of releases from Moonjune Records, or eventually, um, an entire generation will perish! Yeah, that's what record reviews need to be like!"

This is definitely the best of the 4 SML cds out there. It is really NOT like Soft machine but you can feel the LEGACY. Much more closer to groups like Soft Head, Soft Heap or Phil Miller In cahoots. The compositions are new and by the members and are GOOD!. I thought i was going to miss Elton Dean (my all time hero at the sax) but Travis is a marvelous sax / flute player in his own right! And boy can he play! Also, Hopper uses his great fuzz bass to great effect on all tracks bringing in a psychedelic element to the proceedings. Also noticed that Etheridge is much more thoughtful and 'Jazzy' in his solos and general playing, which is a good thing. Marshall is a monster (as always). All and all a great Canterbury flavored fusion & british prog band playing and composing great tunes. Recommended!

What do all the members of Soft Machine Legacy have in common? None of them are Wyatt or Ratledge.
